    A simple glance at the reference section would have told you no. Stock B series bore is 81mm (84mm on the B20B/Z), stock D series bore is 75mm.

    Beyond custom pistons, none that I know of. But I am not very well versed in D series.

    with 100-125 shot say good bye to the tranny after like 3 months.

    i have a friend with a built z6 using stock tranny with good clutch and flywheel and an 80 shot hes gone through 3 tranny's this season.

    Good luck with your project, I'm building a boosted D16Z6, hope for low 11's.

    That's a lot of money to go 12s... Eagle crank? Block guard with a resleeve? Go read up some more. There's no reason to run an aftermarket valvetrain unless you're upgrading your cam and/or revving higher... although you might want to go to stainless valves to handle the nitrous, or maybe something coated.

    Go do some more reading around the forum, and good luck.
